The 2016 International Open Streets Summit happening in Portland August 18-21 gives participants from around the world the opportunity to learn the techniques to fill their streets with people. (In Portland, Open Streets is better known as Sunday Parkways.) 

The noon keynote session on Saturday, August 20th at noon will be free and open to the public, and we invite all Portlanders interested in learning more or getting involved in this open streets movement to join us for this exciting line up of speakers including our own Phil Wu, MD of the NW Health Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, NiCole Keith, Research Scientist from the University of Indiana, Tyler Norris, Vice President of Total Health Partnerships, Kaiser Permanente, and the incomparable Dan Burden of the Blue Zones who will inspire us all to imagine our streets as places for health, physical activity and social connection.
